Media Player audio-video out of sync

When I play an exercise video I have noticed that the audio/video sync starts out fine, then after a while the audio is slightly ahead. Would appreciate advice on how to fix this, thanks.

Hi Badiday,
- Does it happen only with only this file type?
- Can you play other video files without any issues?
- Which version of Media Player do you use?

outdated codecs.

Note: The steps mentioned below are applicable to Windows Media player only.

As of now, I would suggest you to try the steps mentioned below. 

Make sure “Drop frames to keep audio and video synchronized”

a. Open Windows Media Player.

b. Click on Tools and then on Options

c. Switch to Performance tab.

d. Ensure that a check is next to the "Drop frames to keep audio and video synchronized" and "Turn on DirectX Video Acceleration for WMV files" options.

e. Click "Apply" and click "OK."

Restart Windows Media Player and open a video file. Ensure that the audio and video are in sync.
